Re: Based on Genesis 6
Hello, TPlanck, and welcome to EvC!
I've never seen a name given for Mrs Noah before - that's interesting that your translation has one.
If there was a canopy of water covering the Earth, it would have prevented a lot of UV rays.
We've been around this "vapor canopy" barn many times here, but I would like to point out that both oxygen and nitrogen absorb ultraviolet light better than water does. That's on an equal-weight basis, now, so if you want 50% of all our oceans as a "canopy," you may stop most of the UV, 'Course, you also trap all the heat then, too....

Re: Accuracy vs. Inerrancy
If one can't confirm everything in bible, yet can confirm a lot through science, and more importantly doesn't find contradicting evidence....
All available evidence - and that's a very great amount of it - flatly contradicts, for just one example, the order of creation in Genesis 1. Fruit trees most certainly did not precede jellyfish, sharks, or great blue herons. Seed-bearing plants weren't around before the stars and Moon. Birds didn't precede quadrupeds.
And I know you're new here, RC, so I'll warn you now: Answers in Genesis usually gets at best snorts of disgust here. Most of their apologetics is what is called PRATTs - Points Refuted A Thousand Times.

"The wretched world lies now under the tyranny of foolishness; things are believed by Christians of such absurdity as no one ever could aforetime induce the heathen to believe." - Agobard of Lyons, ca. 830 AD

Re: Accuracy vs. Inerrancy
Could you provide me material so I can look at the developed argument of the Genesis 1 refutation?
Give me until this evening, and I will either open a new thread or refer you to an old one where this topic has been discussed. It would lead us off topic here,

Re: 120 year lifespan
there was a mist instead of rain, which doubled as a protection from UV rays.
Would you care to address how water did that, as it is transparent further into the ultraviolet than either nitrogen or oxygen are? I don't see mention of that on your link. Now your link does mention Venus, but fails to mention that it's over 800 degrees F there, all the time.
And nobody called you a spammer. Anthonylau was the spammer.
